I don't know if I've posted this earlier. If I have, forgive me.

This being Veterans Day, my thoughts naturally turned to my boy, Coley. My other son, John, and I both have our names mentioned in the Congressional Record. So are my father and both uncles' names, all for the same thing...being commissioned. Coley is there for what he did.

On Aug. 8, our congressman, Rob Wittman, read speech about Coley and his record as a combat infantryman into the Record. As long as the Republic lasts he'll be recorded there as a soldier. I appreciate Rob's doing that.

Well done, Squire....it's in the genes.
From the Civil War to now, all but one of the men in our family have served....I do have one nephew that never served, and It shows. It's difficult to be self-centered when many others depend upon you for their safety and well being...they are literally in your care....if you've got enough sand.
